One thing that always comes to mind is that D does not have a
free, extensive, structured good reference as Go
(https://www.golang-book.com/books/intro) and Rust

compare D's learn section (http://forum.dlang.org/group/learn)
to those other links. It's kind of frustrating to newcomers.
I've read Andrei's book and its awesome. Couldn't you guys
consider making it open and the official book?
Can you give some examples of things provided by those books
that are not provided by Ali's book? I ignore any project for
which you have to pay to get basic documentation, but I don't
see how that applies with D.
It's not about having free docs, it's about having an official
and good to use free doc. Yes, I'm also talking about ux here
(although being a programmer), not only content - compare Rust's
experience (https://doc.rust-lang.org/stable/book/) to Ali's
(http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/). Ali, I mean no offense, of course.
Anyway, I didn't know about Ali's book. Maybe it could be linked
at dlang.org's left menu?
